Abstract

This book, co-edited by Marise Cremona and Bruno De Witte, examines ‘the basic principles of EU foreign relations law that have emerged over the last 50 years of incremental Treaty-based and judicial development’ in the European Union (EU). The background and context of the book focus primarily on the deliberations over the constitutional framework of the Constitutional and Lisbon Treaties, the increasingly cross-pillar nature of much of EU foreign relations, and the accountability of external relations policy and practice to democratic and judicial review within and outside the EU. By doing so, the book therefore deals with the constitutional fundamentals of EU external relations law.

Keywords: EU foreign relations law, Constitutional Treaty, Lisbon Treaty, cross-pillarisation of EU policies

JEL Classification: K33, K39
